Why Owner chose Star Valley
When we set out to locate that ' special gathering place' for our large family we had a list of things we were looking for .First it had to be accessible to where we lived with a short drive from the Valley. It had to offer services that we would need, shopping, medical, entertainment and local culture. Next the property would have to be large and unique. I always wanted a property with private water rights, and a private pond. The last was a large grass lawn.
What makes this Cabin unique
We appreciate the short one hour drive from the Phoenix area to the clean air of Payson, rated in the top 3 cities in the country for its clean air . The beautiful walks in the surrounding areas and enjoying wildlife that comes onto the property in the evenings is so unique.

A large cabin full of various places for writers to create
Lovely place to come, large bedrooms, many tables, great views. We've gone three years in a row and want to come back. We hope some maintenance issues are taken care of before the next visit. The one horrid event was to arrive and find no corkscrew for the wine. There are lots of utensils for everything, but this year for the first time no corkscrew.
Home away from home.
This is the 2nd time my girl scout troop has stayed at The Palace for a 3 day weekend. We love it! Very spacious to do all our activities, large kitchen to make meals and snacks with ease, large yard and hiking trails. Thanks for a successful trip Mark!!!
Thank you Nita ! Love having your girls and family staying with us.
Long live the thin mints !
Amazing experience for our group!
We spent a full weekend here with a group of young adults on retreat and the house was amazing! Our group of 23 was extremely comfortable and happy. We felt spoiled with all the little things this home has to offer.
We left our truck parked in the garage loaded with much of the gear we usually have to bring but realize we obviously overpacked for this beautiful HomeAway. The home was easy to heat and cool. Luxury accommodations throughout! Located in a rustic area with local stores and restaurants only a few minutes away.
Mark was both personable and professional throughout! He was always only a text message away and that was something I truly appreciated. We will definitely be back again!
So happy to hear you had a great time! Thank you again for brining your family to our Cabin. Looking forward to having you back soon.
We have stayed several times and it is getting a bit rundown. It is not being kept up as it was in the past. Great space for a group of family, friends or co-workers. Would still stay.
We appreciate your business and multiple stays with us. Our desire is to constantly to improve the property and experience our guest have when staying with us. I look forward to hearing from you on the item you felt wasn't up to par so it can be addressed and improved. You have my private contact detail.
Look forward to having you back with us.
Great Vacation Rental with tons of space!
I rented this cabin for my 30th Birthday and brought along a total of 14 friends. There was plenty of room and big king size beds, so everyone slept comfortably. We cooked all of our food on the BBQ grill and in the kitchen. The only thing I would suggest to the owner, is to upgrade the old coffee pots to a Keurig. We went through a lot of coffee and it takes a while for the pots to brew. There was tons of seating outside, sports to play and hiking nearby. The Owner- Mark, was very easy to work with and super friendly. We hope to visit again someday!
Always great to hear that you and your family enjoyed the cabin. Congrats on your # 30 ! Hope to have you back again. I've passed along the coffee pot input to my team there.
Our Thanksgiving Family Get away
